Multi-band Magnetic Resonance Fingerprinting can be achieved using UNFOLD-like acquisition and dictionary matching without using parallel methods. However, the MR parametric maps after dictionary matching in one slice suffers from artifacts due to the high frequency components of other simultaneously acquired slices. In this work, a new acquisition strategy was proposed for the multi-band acquisition, where spiral-in-out trajectory was used to provide extra kz encoding. A modified sliding window reconstruction was also proposed to reduce the high frequency oscillations.
